Congratulations to me!
Yesterday was like Christmas after the UPS man came.
I got brand new Salomon Threat twintip skis, tshirts, two snow beanies, and 2 dvds of the movie Reasons.
Why you might ask?
This was the first installment of two payments owed to me from Poor Boyz Productions for using my song "Fly Away" in their award winning film Reasons (They took home 4 top awards at the International Freeskiing Film Festival in Montreal).
So I got my swag, and then next will come my check.
That's right. I am finally getting paid for having my music in movies. It feels pretty nice. I've had my music in several indie films over the last year, but this is the first non-indie film and the first time I've actually been paid.
So again, congratulations to me. :)
And to Will, because I'm giving the skis to him. I already have some nice Rosi's and Will has been skiing on used rental skis. And twin tips? Are you kidding me? As IF I ski downhill backwards. I will leave all those types of tricks up to Will and his brothers this year at the family reunion at Yellowstone.
On another note, I was just selected to be an author on a music teacher's blog. I'm pretty excited. I will be contributing one article her month. I put the link on our sidebar under the "Other Blogs We Dig" category at the bottom.
